That's not vim's fault:

	$ echo $TERM

But this is gnome-terminal, and _not_ xterm. xterm used a white
default background since prehistoric times, so when vim detects xterm,
it uses colors that look good with the traditional xterm colors. If it
detects the Linux console, it uses colors that look good on the console.

Now, if your terminal pretends to be xterm but does not use the color
scheme of xterm, how should vim know that?
